Bio Extra

Gay signed on amateur terms in time for the start of the 1944-45 season. The Daily Record (10/8/1944) tells that he was a Fifer, that he served in the army and that he was formerly of Charlton Athletic. They mentioned that he would play in the forthcoming game versus Queen's Park, and the Sunday Post confirms this came to pass. How long he lasted at Firhill, or what became of him thereafter, remains a bit of a mystery.

On account of his service during WWII, Andrew is included in our feature piece, The Partick Thistle Returned →.
